Homewood Cabin Rental Photos and Description
Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)
Regardless of snow conditions, the McKinney Cabin offers a relaxing stay on Tahoe's beautiful West Shore. Homewood Ski Area is 5 minutes away with shuttle service available. Snowshoe out the back door through a trail that will take you into the National Forest. In Summer and Fall, decide whether you want to ride the bike trail, single track, or hike the miles of trails and open terrain along General Creek or in the forest behind the cabin, or relax on the deck with a good book. In summer, load our all-terrain wagon with sunscreen, towels, and toys and take the five-minute, level walk to Chamber's Landing Public Beach for a day in the sun. Supplies and great deli sandwiches are available at one of the markets nearby.
A southeastern exposure allows sunshine to stream through the windows, making that cup of coffee by the fire in the Master Bedroom even more glorious.
The open design of the main-floor offers plenty of room for the gathering of family and friends after a day of skiing or hiking. Warm your hands by the woodstove, sink into the comfortable living room sofas, or share in preparing a meal. Guests will find the kitchen clean and well-equipped, whether plans include preparing gourmet meals or heating up pizzas. A large dining table comfortably seats eight and the room allows for an auxiliary table to be added for more indoor seating. Outdoor dining is accommodated by two picnic tables on the back deck. The den, just off the great room, offers a separate space for playing games, watching movies, or playing a tune on the cabin's vintage piano. The laundry room and a bath with shower are located off the mudroom.
Three cozy bedrooms upstairs accommodate six to eight sleepers. The spacious Master Bedroom, with fireplace and King-size bed, also has two dormers that could sleep children on airbeds if desired. A sitting area near the fireplace in the Master bedroom offers a delightful view of the forest.
Queen-size beds provide comfortable sleeping in both the second and third bedrooms. The dormer in the ''Bear'' Room has room for an air bed. A romantic view of Tahoe's famous night sky is visible from the balcony off the Moose Room?. A queen-size sofa-bed in the living room offers sleeping for two additional guests. Luxurious towels and quality linens are provided. The McKinney Cabin is tastefully decorated to add to the allure of your Lake Tahoe retreat. Comfort and ease of care will make your stay thoroughly enjoyable.

About Leslie Smith
We are an active couple in our early sixties who love the outdoors, and especially Lake Tahoe.
Leslie Smith purchased this cabin in 2010
Why Leslie Smith chose Homewood
Lake Tahoe has been a favorite destination for both of us since we were children. Our families frequented the West Shore and local ski areas and we continued to bring our own three children up for skiing, boating, hiking and generally hanging out at the lake.
This property spoke to us the moment we entered because of it's comfortable layout, sunny exposure both winter and summer, and the proximity to the beach, bike trail, and hiking in the forest behind the cabin.
What makes this cabin unique
Location! A five minute walk to Chambers Public Beach with our wagon filled with beach chairs, towels, and a picnic in tow or with our kayaks ready for a paddle to Emerald Bay. The large deck off the back overlooking forested open space. Riding our our driveway to connect with either the paved bike trail or up into the forest for mountain biking. A five minute drive or shuttle ride to Homewood Ski Resort, snowshoeing out the back door into the National Forest.
Comfortable and cozy inside.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Very cozy. I slept more soundly than I had in weeks! The cabin had everything we needed and it was so convenient to be able to jump on the bike trail just down the street.
